The Poetry Brothel is an ongoing series of immersive events that mixes poetry with the vibe of New Orleans and Parisian-style bordellos. The “madame” presents the carefully crafted characters—or “whores”—in a unique group show or in one-on-one readings in the back rooms. Their most recent event, at Brooklyn’s House of Yes on January 9, was a 10-year anniversary celebration. Photographer Jeanette D. Moses was there to capture the revelry.
